Significant Revisions to Deceased Donor Kidney Allocation Policy Approved

The Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN)/United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) Board of Directors approved substantial amendments to OPTN policy for deceased donor kidney allocation at their meeting in late June. The changes seek to improve outcomes for kidney transplant recipients, increase the years recipients have a functioning transplant and increase use of available kidneys. The changes are expected in 2014.
